A threat made by a high school student at Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk is under investigation.

Superintendent Brian Bailey says the threat was shared over social media and threatened to harm a group of students.

Bailey says the Albany County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the situation and is taking action.

"The Albany County Sheriffs are a constant presence in our schools, both through our School Resource Officers and also through regular patrols of our campuses and community. In addition, all RCS Schools have secure entrances, exterior doors are locked, and students and staff perform training and safety drills throughout the year," said Bailey, in a statement.

Bailey says students are always urged to report anything suspicious they see.

Since this happened at the end of the day, the district says there were no lockdowns, lockouts or closures.
